One is for the Domain Controllers and the other is domain wide.

Domain Security Settings affect every computer in the domain.  Domain Controller Security Settings only affect machines in the Domain Controllers OU.

Keep in mind that Account Policies (password, lockout, and kerberos settings) must be set at the domain level.  They have no effect if set on a site or OU.

Group Policy is a big and complicated topic.  Here is an introduction:

I am not sure where you see the two, meaning Domain Security and Domain Controller Security, to draft this question? But, it sounds like you are trying to figure out the Domain controller's settings in comparison to the Default Domain Group policy settings.

The domain controller's settings should be one domain controller, when the domain security settings will interact with all domain controllers and clients on your domain.

Looks like we were all drafting the answer at the same time. Sorry about the redundancy.

So if you set a DC Permision, it will replicate to other DCs only and if you set the Domain permission it goes out to every PC, Server etc on the domain?
